    Sony Vaio keyboard errors

    My friend's Sony Vaio laptop is giving keyboard errors - substituting the incorrect characters when typing.

    For example if I type the name "George" it comes out "Ge6rge".

    When I connected an external keyboard it worked fine.
    I know that there are ways to re-map keyboard keys. But if that was what was going on here, wouldn't it also affect the external keyboard?

    That article suggests Numlock may be enabled. I think that is the issue. Thanks!
